Our Focus

We equip you to get noticed. Get differentiated. Simplify complex sales. Shorten long purchase cycles. And get more efficient and effective at all of it.   We do this in five B2B marketplaces where this is most challenging.

What’s common to these four industries are high-value, high-stakes, complex products with multiple decision-makers and complex decision paths.

But that’s just what we like. (We were those annoying kids in class who always did the extra credit problems).

How a Real Persona Made a Real Difference

In the past few years “buyer personas” have become a standard marketing tool or concept. Unfortunately for many, they have become another “box to check” on the ever-growing list of things marketers must do… often without much to show for the effort. So… are personas a real asset to marketers or just another faux marketing fad?

Turn your Case Studies into Selling Stories P1

There are some things in life that you know how they will end even before they begin. The movie Casablanca is a classic example. You know from the start of the movie WHERE the story is going. You just don’t know HOW. And the HOW is what made it a classic. A case study...

Listen – Here are 6 Ways to Gain a B2B Prospecting Edge

While conducting Net Promoter Score (NPS) research for a b2b technology client we asked the president of an operating division of a large multinational the following, “you gave our client the highest NPS score, what is the greatest benefit you get from them?” The answer, “our salesman”.

Marketing as Smog

Many b2b prospects have expressed that unfocused marketing communications are noxious – clogging the air and littering the landscape, substituting quantity for quality, volume and weight for insight. Surely, if our message is everywhere, and if we speak loudly, our prospects will flock to our door. Sure – ask the people of Mexico City or Beijing, how’s that breathing thing coming along. Ask them about the view.

I think marketing is doing way too much talking.

The Hidden Problem of Innovation Marketing… or You Can’t Solve A Problem Until You Create One

Let’s just say you landed a job as the new CMO at a really great growth company. And not just ANY company. You just snagged a role at a really hot start-up. Pre-IPO stock options. In-house chef. The works.

But wait – there’s more! Your product (or service) is not an “also-ran” entry in an undifferentiated commodity market with nothing to talk about. No, you’re marketing a true leading-edge product with demonstrable superiority. A product (or service), they say, that practically “sells itself”. You nailed it!
